Metaphysical meaning of Bene-jaakan (mbd)
Bene-jaakan (A. V., Deut. 10:6, Beeroth of the children of Jaakan), ben'-e-ja'-a-kan (Heb.)--sons or children of Jaakan; sons of the wrestler; children of the twister; children of the perverter, i. e., perverted.

A place where the Israelites camped while on their way from Egypt to Canaan (Num. 33:31). In Deuteronomy 10:6 it is called Beeroth Bene-jaakan.

Meta. A group of thoughts belonging to the Horite phase of consciousness. Being on the sense plane and blind to the real truth of man's being (Jaakan was a Horite, and the Horites have their seat of action in the physical organism; they are cave-dwellers, and so refer especially to the deep-seated, error, carnal tendencies and activities of the physical man), the thoughts that Bene-jaakan signifies usually aid in leading the individual away from the true light of life (children of the perverter, i. e., perverted) instead of leading him to higher thought and activity; they turn, twist, and distort the Truth to suit their own error ends. The camping of the children of Israel at Bene-jaakan while on their way to the Promised Land bespeaks an adjusting of this seemingly perverted phase of consciousness by introducing the light of Truth into it.
